    After years of using Mach 3 and other multi-blade razors, I finally decided to go the DE route. I used to use a DE Bic years ago but now I decided to go high-end so to speak. I just bought an 56' Gillette Super Speed on ebay and bought an extended sampler pack from West Coast Shaving. I can't wait to try my new "toys". I've already used great shave products from Trumpers, Taylor, Caswell-Massey, Col. Conk and KMF with fantastic results. I will follow West Coast's advise and this threads advice on starting with one and working up.

    Oh, and Rick's right about the Caswell stuff. At least the samples I tried. (Lord, I hate it when I agree with Rick! :D)

    Thanks to everyone for their kind comments. I was wondering about the Caswell-Massey comment since I just got a bowl of their Greenbriar soap and it seems to lather well and have a nice scent. I have not tried any of their other products. Lots of great info in these forums and I enjoy reading them each day. Best to All!!

  15. Welcome!

    I recently got a DE Safety Razor and wow! You can tell the difference right away. I used to shave with Guillete Razors, but now I am sticking to the new DE. Though, since I am new to this, I do get some cuts... :(
